Dealing With Scalp Problems

Dealing With Scalp Problems

I have had a situation with scalp problems for as long as I could remember.

It feels like bugs crawling around, making it itch, and sometimes I will feel a sharp pain, and when I touch where it hurt, there is a raised bump.

However, I have never seen any bugs or anything weird. I was told maybe it is parasites. So I was looking online for something to help them, but all I see are for ones in the intestines.

What can I do to end this once and for all?

Hi Jen,

Believe it or not, you would treat scalp problems or scalp parasites in a very similar way to intestinal parasites.

This is especially true for a situation where you haven't ever seen an external parasite even though it feels external. You almost always treat the inside as well as the outside of your body when you are dealing with a persistent condition.

Our skin is often a reflection of what is going on on the inside. :)

What have you tried on your scalp so far? This is what I would suggest...


Rinse your scalp well with a sea salt and water mixture. After that, apply a mixture of lavender oil and tea tree oil to the scalp. You can put the oils in a carrier oil to make it go further (like olive oil) and easier to spread on the scalp.

Once you've done this daily for four or five days, you can switch to a less regimented routine by simply adding some essential oils to your shampoo and conditioner. You can use the cheapest shampoo and conditioner you can find if you like, and to a 12 ounce or more bottle you would add the following...

Add to the shampoo bottle:

  • 10 drops of Eucalyptus oil
  • 5 drops of Geranium oil
  • 5 drops of Lavender oil
  • 5 drops of Neem oil
  • 5 drops of Thyme oil

Add to the bottle of conditioner:

20 drops of Peppermint oil

If you use smaller bottles of shampoo and conditioner, reduce the amount of oils used. If you can't find all the oils listed, use as many as you can find. Most of them are available at the Vitamin Shoppe.


I highly recommend that in your effort to get rid of your scalp problem that you also cleanse internally like I said from the beginning. This can really have a profound effect on your body's ability to eliminate or ward off whatever is pestering you.

Start out with 1 teaspoon of Herbal Fiberblend twice per day and gradually increase to 1 tablespoon twice per day for several weeks. Then gradually decrease back down again when you are finished cleansing.

I would also suggest that you take some essential fatty acids, like AIMega, every day if you don't already. This is a simple way to help your body strengthen the immune system (along with a healthy diet).

Hope that helps and that you are able to finally get rid of the scalp problem once and for all. Please let me know if I can be of any further help.
